The Parallel Bible App is Like Instagram For the Bible

Parallel Bible is far from being the first Bible-centered app out there, but it is the first to successfully blend the worlds of photography and religious communication. This app looks and feels like Instagram -- except that instead of using filters, you can tag your photos with biblical verses.

If a tag doesn't spring to mind when you're sharing a photo, you can browse through a database of verses by using keyword search terms. These captioned photos can then be shared on personal feeds. You can also click on your verse tag and see which other photos have been tagged with that verse. This encourages people to communicate with each other about their personal interpretation of a verse or verses.

This app makes the Bible personal and shareable, and allows people to better understand how Biblical teachings and concepts are relevant to their daily lives.
